If this isn’t a motive building spaceships and travelling to another world then I don’t know what is. At a mere 40 light years away and Dubbed 55 Cancri e, this planet is only twice the size of earth but almost eight times its mass. The planet orbits its star in only 18 hours giving it temperatures of 2,150 Degrees Celsius. This temperature coupled with the fact that it is comprised mostly of carbon indicates that this planet could be perfect for the formation of diamond.
